The Hard Truth About Sunshine is a road trip you’ll never forget! Check out my REVIEW!

The Hard Truth About Sunshine is a poignant look at the crappy side of life. Fighting for his country made him harsh and bitter, but three other people will show him that there is sun on the other side of the storm. A heart wrenching read that will leave you in pieces but unable to stop reading, unable to stop feeling and unable to keep from loving every word.

5 Witchy Stars of still holding myself together GOOD!

This book hit so close to my heart, this will be one that stays with me forever. 
Christopher, oh Christopher you are such an arse but I feel your pain. I understand your frustrations, your anger, your bitterness. Life threw you a curve that you just weren’t prepared to swerve for. I loved watching you grow.
These four people think they have nothing in common but they share more than they could ever know. One road trip will show them just how entwined their lives really are. 

An emotional mess where you will need tissues and a snuggle. Jillian will help you fill you with hope, Connor will give you strength, Barb will show you her pain, and Christopher, well this is his story and he will make you feel it all. 
This is a story about accepting the hand you have been dealt no matter how bad you think it is. A story that shows you tomorrow is another day and even though it may hurt, it may seem desolate and worthless, the hard truth of sunshine and light will lead you where you need to be. 

Sometimes your redemption is in the last place you expect to be. The character growth in this book is phenomenal. This is not an erotic, hot read …this is a refreshing, bring you out of a reading funk kind of book that you will carry in you soul.


New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett has written her most gripping and poignant tale yet. Provocatively heart-breaking, audaciously irreverent and romantically fulfilling, The Hard Truth About Sunshine exposes just how very thin the line is between a full life and an empty existence. 


An angry, bitter amputee.

An optimist losing her eyesight.

A dying kid.

A suicidal thief.

Four people with nothing in common but their destination.


Despite having narrowly escaped death’s clutches, Christopher Barlow is grateful for nothing. His capacity to love has been crushed. He hates everyone and everything, completely unable to see past the gray stain of misery that coats his perception of the world. It’s only after he involuntarily joins a band of depressed misfits who are struggling to overcome their own problems, does Christopher start to re-evaluate his lot in life.

What could they possibly learn from one another? How could they possibly help each other to heal? And the question that Christopher asks himself over and over again… can he learn to love again?

He’s about to find out as he embarks upon a cross country trip with a beautiful woman who is going blind, a boy with terminal cancer, and an abuse victim who can’t decide whether she wants to live or die.

They will encounter adventure, thrills, loss and love.

And within their travels they will learn the greatest lesson of all.

The hard truth about sunshine…



Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released more than 30 books and has been featured on both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists on multiple occasions. 

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone. 

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active toddler, as well as full-time servant to two adorably naughty dogs. She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or a combination of the two.




Warning: This book deals with some tough issues including suicide and sexual abuse.
